In this latest addition to the ARK series, your survival skills are pushed to the limit, making water and irrigation a crucial part of your journey. Released in early access for Windows on October 25, 2023, with plans for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S release in November, this game takes the survival adventure to a whole new level.
Intake Pipe Placement
In the untamed landscapes of ARK: Survival Ascended, water is your lifeline. Start by placing an Intake Pipe in a water source, such as a river or lake. This is the beginning of your water adventure and is essential for accessing your water source. Pick a location near your base to get started.
Water Wells Installation
Now that you’ve secured your Intake Pipe, it’s time to set up Water Wells connected to it. These wells serve as the primary water source for your irrigation system. They draw water from the Intake Pipe, ensuring a constant water supply. The number of Water Wells you need depends on the scale of your operation and the water requirements of your base and crops.
Stone Water Pipes
To transport water from the Water Wells to your base and crops, you’ll need Stone Water Pipes. These pipes create a network to move water efficiently throughout your territory. As your base expands and your crops grow, extend your irrigation system accordingly.
Connect to Your Base and Crops
With your irrigation system in place, connect the Stone Water Pipes to your crop plots and any other structures that need water. Proper connections are crucial for a consistent water supply. Keeping your crops hydrated ensures they’ll flourish and sustain your tribe.
In the harsh world of ARK: Survival Ascended, a stable water supply is vital for your base, crops, and your chances of survival. By following these steps and keeping a close eye on the needs of your tribe, you’ll not only survive but thrive in this unforgiving environment. Get out there, build your empire, and conquer the prehistoric challenges of ARK: Survival Ascended!
